Poll: From Sarah Palin to Michelle Obama--Which Female Icon's Story Would You Most Want to Read?

"FEMALE FORCE" salutes four women leaders. (Bluewater Productions )

A new trade-paperback comic lands today, picturing a foursome you might never see so chummily assembled in real life.

The "Female Force" bio-comic series has previously featured these four icons, but today, Hillary Clinton, Caroline Kennedy, Michelle Obama and Sarah Palin are literally bound together to be celebrated in a single graphic novel of sorts.

The new title includes the first four issues of the "biography comic book series," says
its publisher, Bluewater Productions. The 96-page anthology includes "an updated version of the Sarah Palin issue that addresses her resignation announcement as Alaska's governor in July."

The cover pictured here is by artist Vinnie Tartamella. The publisher says: "Female Force offers a broad examination of strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture."

That said, the Official 'Riffs Question of the Day is: Of these four women's stories, which one are you most interested in reading as a comic bio? (Yes, this is a wide-open question in terms of reader motivation; and no, "all of the above" and "none of the above" -- copouts both -- are not votable options here.) Now, the floor is yours.


Sarah Palin

Caroline Kennedy and Hillary Clinton.

Michelle Obama.
